Jimmy Tamborello – Dying Songs
“Dying Songs” focuses on melancholic electronic music but isn’t limited to that. Sometimes it gets dark, sometimes I try to mix techno awkwardly, sometimes i get nostalgic… I like stuff that’s dreamy, ghostly, pretty and sad. I’ll try out new productions of my own, as well. I’m keeping it pretty open and we’ll see how it evolves.” – Jimmy Tamborello

Joanna Wallfisch – guest set
Acclaimed singer-songwriter Joanna Wallfisch is proud to announce the release of her highly-anticipated fourth album Blood & Bone, out February 1st, 2018. Her most adventurous and transparent album to date, Wallfisch shares an intimate journey from heartbreak to healing over the course of fourteen original compositions that tell an inspiring and affecting story of love and adventure. The stage is set for this voyage in the opening track “The Ship” as she sings: “…out of the splinter’s of my broken heart I built this ship to sail into a bright new start, with lessons learned, some bridges burned, and a tail wind in my heart.” “Blood & Bone” presents Wallfisch at home in her genre-blending jazz, classical and folk influences giving way to a lush new sound that is uniquely her own. Wallfisch’s vocals and ukulele are complemented by a stellar band featuring pianist Jesse Elder, bassist Pablo Menares, guitarist Elias Meister, drummer Kenneth Salters, banjoist Jared Engel and also The Solar String Quartet.
MORE ABOUT JOANNA WALLFISCH
London born, LA/NYC based vocalist, composer and multi-instrumentalist Joanna Wallfisch has emerged as a unique voice in the singer-songwriter world. With a classical and jazz infused background, her music combines post-folk and art-song with a poetic lyricism which The New York Times described as “sensitive and deep”. She is a master in the art of live vocal looping and creates beguiling vocal soundscapes to accompany her songs. The Telegraph called her virtuosic performance as “sublime and unique”.
Since 2011 Wallfisch has released three critically acclaimed albums. Gardens In My Mind, (Sunnyside, 2016), features pianist Dan Tepfer and the award-winning Sacconi Quartet, showcasing Joanna’s “crystalline delivery” (Downbeat) and lush string quartet writing. Downbeat gave this album four stars, calling it “an exquisite singer-songwriter album”, while PopMatters called it “a truly beautiful listen from start to finish”.
She has worked with a litany of musical greats such as Wynton Marsalis, Fred Hersch, Lee Konitz, Joe Martin, Sam Newsome, and Dan Tepfer, with whom she’s recorded two critically acclaimed projects including 2015’s The Origin of Adjustable Things.
Joanna is endorsed by Kala Brand ukulele, and plays their cedar top baritone, long neck soprano and -Bass. She also uses an RCBoss 30 loop pedal.

Michael Robinson – guest Set
Azure Miles Records was formed to present the changing seasons of my music. The name of my company is after Yeats, “Maybe in some isle of isles, In the South Seas azure miles…” and I now have a catalog of 113 albums. The cover art for each album uses hand silkscreen and hand woodblock printed papers from Japan, India, Nepal and Thailand. I choose the silkscreen design to reflect and enhance the music.
In my compositions and performances, I try to present a musical language in a form and feeling inspired by American, South Asian and European traditions. I program my meruvina, a combination of software and hardware that I use as my instrument, and I play fully notated scores in real time, voicing each work with tone colors and tunings of acoustic instruments from myriad world cultures. Intent and hope is for my music to sound alive and spontaneous with an improvisational spirit suffused into composition.
My music is based on ragas, which lend themselves to new manifestations in both content and sound, synergizing with chosen elements of jazz, Western classical, rock and pop. I compose for close, even meditational, listening on both intellectual and spiritual planes, including elements of adbhuta rasa (wonderment, exhilaration) and shanta rasa (tranquility).

Induce – Dancing, Thinking Loving, Listening
It all started with these words from Induce, “Bout to get on and play some weird stuff @dublab till about 4. Tune in!” Then the lightning split the sky and all the sounds from the dublab studio on this oblate spheroid called Planet Earth were pulled into the cosmos in a single beam of high lumen energy. From this newly elevated point they hit the universal prism of memory reflection and were split throughout the wide universe. We’re happy you got your radio attuned to Induce’s transmission. Whether you’re hearing this 2 billion years from now or simply right now we know you’ll enjoy the “weird stuff” being offered.
